'Screaming Serenades' is Kindle's debut album, an excellent collection of pulsating pop rock tracks and ballads, which infect you ears with soothing reflections one minute then have your whole body rocking, tapping and nodding in agreement the next. Although the lyrics to "Brighter Days" are a little cheesy and borderline cliched, the simple honesty in "Someone To Live For" redeems the album from any prior concerns. Simon Parkin's singular vocals complement the classic drum and guitar combination to create a clean production, which will undoubtedly put them in good stead for the future. There is a cheeky little remix of "State Of Waiting" by Adam Mills at the end of the album which reflects the creativity and imagination of the band and their willingness to absorb influences from other genres. Extremely radio friendly.
